On FALSE teachings

 

1 Timothy 4:1

King James Version

4 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, 

that in the latter times 

some shall depart from the faith, 

giving heed to seducing spirits, 

and doctrines of devils;


A doctrine is a "teaching", or "instruction".

How do we know what doctrine to trust?

How do we know we are being led to JESUS?

To know, we must know what NOT to trust.

As always, SPIRIT guided me to these verses:

Jeremiah 10:8

King James Version

8 But they are altogether brutish and foolish: 

the stock is a doctrine of vanities.


Luke 16:14-15

King James Version

14 And the Pharisees also, 

who were covetous, 

heard all these things: 

and they derided him.

15 And he said unto them, 

Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; 

but God knoweth your hearts: 

for that which is highly esteemed among men 

is abomination in the sight of God.


Romans 16:17-18

King James Version

17 Now I beseech you, brethren, 

mark them which cause divisions and offences 

contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; 

and avoid them.

18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, 

but their own belly; 

and by good words and fair speeches 

deceive the hearts of the simple.


2 Corinthians 11:3

King James Version

3 But I fear, lest by any means, 

as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, 

so your minds should be corrupted 

from the simplicity that is in Christ.


Galatians 1:6-10

King James Version

6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed 

from him that called you into the grace of Christ 

unto another gospel:

7 Which is not another; 

but there be some that trouble you, 

and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

8 But though we, 

or an angel from heaven, 

preach any other gospel unto you 

than that which we have preached unto you, 

let him be accursed.

9 As we said before, 

so say I now again, 

if any man preach any other gospel unto you 

than that ye have received, 

let him be accursed.

10 For do I now persuade men, 

or God? 

or do I seek to please men? 

for if I yet pleased men, 

I should not be the servant of Christ.


Colossians 2:8

King James Version

8 Beware lest any man spoil you 

through philosophy and vain deceit, 

after the tradition of men, 

after the rudiments of the world, 

and not after Christ.


1 Timothy 4:7

King James Version

7 But refuse profane and old wives' fables, 

and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.


1 Timothy 6:20-21

King James Version

20 O Timothy, 

keep that which is committed to thy trust, 

avoiding profane and vain babblings, 

and oppositions of science falsely so called:

21 Which some professing have erred 

concerning the faith. 

Grace be with thee. 

Amen.


2 Timothy 4:3-4

King James Version

3 For the time will come 

when they will not endure sound doctrine; 

but after their own lusts 

shall they heap to themselves teachers, 

having itching ears;

4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, 

and shall be turned unto fables.


Titus 3:9

King James Version

9 But avoid foolish questions, 

and genealogies, 

and contentions, 

and strivings about the law; 

for they are unprofitable and vain.


Revelation 22:18-19

King James Version

18 For I testify unto every man 

that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, 

If any man shall add unto these things, 

God shall add unto him 

the plagues that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away 

from the words of the book of this prophecy, 

God shall take away his part out of the book of life, 

and out of the holy city, 

and from the things which are written in this book.
